    “Israel has admitted for the first time that it has been giving Ethiopian Jewish immigrants birth-control injections, often without their knowledge or consent.
    The government had previously denied the practice but the Israeli Health Ministry’s director-general has now ordered gynaecologists to stop administering the drugs. According a report in Haaretz, suspicions were first raised by an investigative journalist, Gal Gabbay, who interviewed more than 30 women from Ethiopia in an attempt to discover why birth rates in the community had fallen dramatically.
    One of the Ethiopian women who was interviewed is quoted as saying: “They [medical staff] told us they are inoculations. We took it every three months. We said we didn’t want to.” It is alleged that some of the women were forced or coerced to take the drug while in transit camps in Ethiopia.”[link to http://www.independent.co.uk

    Ah yes…so many sins, one must choose what to report. Can Palestinians live anywhere in Israel ?..how bought that…

    The Hitching Post is a for profit rental hall. It offers non-denominational services or generic religious service. The owners are Christian, the business is not. If the city was suing a Church or Synagogue or mosque to perform a same sex marriage it would be laughed out of court. Open your business to the public and gays,straights, catholics even Mormons can come in. But Catholics and Mormons can allow or forbid among the members, including same sex marriage. That distinction MUST be respected. And when you are not a church,you can’t claim that status and THAT must be respected.

    @Pass_the_Bacon -
    I think people who act like this is no big deal are a bunch of double tongued hypocrites and wouldn’t be pedaling this B.S if they had to put their own rear and their families ” life on the line”…

    Having put my life on the line for others quite a few times and being alive long enough to realize almost all things are in fact no big deal. There are real dangers and there are potential, manageable, solvable ones. Bright folks know the difference and act accordingly. Obama is a bad president and we should restrict travel from W.Africa…and no Americans have died from Ebola in the US. So “most” of what we have been told , so far,is true. The CDC says “Low Risk” and some people hear “NO risk”. If the situation changes I’ll reevaluate my opinions…I just wish the doomtards would do the same. Been a month….so far no outbreak…GREAT !

    Jim- Thumbs down, your type of thinking is what kills a lot of innocent folks

    What is my “Type” of thinking? You were asking for the MSM to report nightly on the American body count..Ok ZERO…what does THAT type of thinking get you? When the planes engines fail,some people scream that we all gonna die in 5 minutes…the good pilot says heck,I’ve got 5 minutes to solve this problem …pretty clear who we want in a problem situation…Body count ZERO..I know you were hoping…maybe next time.

    More Americans have married Kim Kardashian than have died from Ebola. Govt., regardless of the party in charge, has one of two reactions to real or imagined crisis, under react or over react. As bad as the two infected nurses is,compare that to the sky is falling,we all gonna be infected in a month reaction to the problem. Each day that goes by with no new infections almost validates most of the CDC narrative,errors and all. Compare the CDC statements to the knee jerk statements here,in the media etc. You must come in direct contact with the bodily fluids of an Ebola infected person. It’s not airborne, and if proper protocols are taken, health care folks are safe. Obama is a bad president and no Americans have died of Ebola in the US after a month of having Ebola enter the US. Stop travel from the infected area for at least 3 months…prudent.

    @123456beatriz
    @Jim Are you sure the 3dr. Tech Lab is not contaminated ? Who can give you security ?

    Given the errors made at the Dallas hospital I am surprised there are a few more. As far as we know there are none. The virus is not political. It’s hard to get Ebola. That our current bad president in his usual lump of indecision has no effect on the medical status of the virus. As the Dallas hospital has shown 100 medical staff can be around a patient in the end stages,full of the virus and two are infected. No one else has been infected. Obamacare, Isis, Bush, CDC, WHO et al., do not alter the virus…thankfully. I think people from Nigeria do die of heart attacks more than Ebola. I know, keep hoping. We have no Ebola outbreak in the US…and Obama is still a bad president.

    @willkauffman -
    So what your saying is if they do not agree with you or someone else s convictions then they are Un–American?

    I have no idea of what their Americanism is at the moment. They said the requirement is a marriage certificate and payment and you must use their ministers. My point is this is not a church – state issue. This is for profit side business open to the public. If a “church” was being fined for not performing a same sex marriage I would support the church %.

    @Honestybefore truth -
    As to the race issue there is only one race, that of Man. His job as State A.G. is no different than any other attorney, to represent his client whether he agrees with “him” or not. As long as he does so in an ethical manner he is doing what is expected of his position

    So he should ‘”ethically” defend a law he believes is wrong. immoral? That depends on what is…is. I said I would prefer a man or woman who would decline to do something against their opinion. Attorneys can recuse themselves and do all the time.

    @BandonOregon -
    Your wrong… Their is three nurses who have ebola, the one on the cruise. If we don’t close the borders then yes we will have a lot more cases.

    No you’re wrong, there are two nurses with Ebola. A third nurse on the cruise ship was exposed but has no symptom and tested negative for Ebola. I agree with travel restrictions from the W.African nations. The amount of bad information from govt. and the we all going to die crowd does blur the picture.
    More Americans have married Kim Kardashian than have died from Ebola is a true statement.
    Cruise ship returns to Texas; passenger negative for Ebola

    Everyone knows it’s Windy…PSSSST..”Before we examine the claim, it is important to note that Abbott is actually in an interracial marriage. His wife is Hispanic…”
    Hispanic is an ethnic group not a race…does the author advise the Wendy campaign ? I support but his answer is odd…he would defend a bad law? Not decline? mmmm…been a lawyer a bit too long…but he still gets my vote.

    @ibertynotliberal -Oct. 20, 2014 at 3:52pm
    Jim S! You talk about the facts like you know what they are. There were over 50,000 signatures. The city secretary stopped counting after she validated over 17,000+ signatures. The mayor just decided to have the city attorney throw them all out. She then went on to harass the local pastors in Houston who had an opinion other than hers. The lawyers that issued the subpoena to the churches on behalf of the mayor are working “pro-bono” although they are some of the largest and most powerful in the city. Smell a little dirty? Now the churches have to lawyer up and fight back against this lunacy.

    They sued the city, they allege wrong doing on the city’s part. The city needs to prove the signatures it tossed were invalid. The churches were the source of many of the signatures valid and invalid. I assume a court issued the subpoena based on a legal need the city offered. I would think the churches would gladly produce the requested documents. These are in regards to the gathering of signatures ONLY. Or did the churches knowingly violate the petition process and therefore need to lawyer up? Who sued who first?

    I am not sure about what is more dangerous to Texas, a virus not spreading or lies by Beck. His usual simple minded misunderstanding of easily understood facts. This is a civil subpoena regarding 17,000 ballot signatures to exempt churches from a local ordinance regarding discrimination. The backers of the call for exemptions then sued the city for tossing those 17,000. The city then requested, amended. On Friday, the subpoena was revised, nixing the word “sermon” and narrowing the overall scope to require, “All speeches or presentations related to HERO or the Petition prepared by, delivered by, revised by, or approved by you or in your possession. So the city was trying to confirm that there was no voted fraud. This is common knowledge here in TX., the city,in response to the suit is trying to affirm ALL the signatures were legally gathered. Does that sound anything like Beck’s twisted story ? But the Ebola panic is fading so Beck needs a new DANGER. I have a LOT of problems with law passed in Houston, religious exemptions should have been in the original law..if any law was needed anyway. If the facts don’t fit your narrative. just ignore them.

    More Americans have married Kim Kardashian than have died from Ebola. Not sure if changing protocols as we learn more in a bad thing, when presented with new information intelligent people change their opinion. Besides the media fed hysteria, there seems to be an almost desire for mass deaths among some and now they are disappointed. A bad president and bumbling hospital and we have 2 infected,both of whom were in direct contact with a Ebola patient in the final stages. Nobody else. Nobody on planes, living with him, other medical staff, ambulance staff etc etc. We may lose 1 or both nurses but the virus is NOT spreading,we have no epidemic,we have no outbreak. Science and medicine live and learn.

    @Think_Twice2
    Per the article: “the Hitching Post Wedding Chapel, which opened in 1989, is a for-profit business, which means that it is not exempt from local non-discrimination regulations.”

    Excellent point. If you go to their web site, http://hitchingpostweddings.com, and go to the FAQ section:
    What do I need to do before I get married?
    Before getting married at the Hitching Post, you will need to acquire an Idaho State Marriage License. We also encourage you to make a reservation.
    Who performs the wedding ceremonies?
    All ceremonies are only done by our Licensed or Ordained Hitching Post ministers.

    They are a nondenominational rental hall who will perform the wedding for a fee. It’s a business. They say all you need is a marriage license and the $$$.

    Rafael,you are a member of one of the co-branches of the Federal Govt. Laws originate in the House. Why not use your vast leadership skills and all the alliances you have built to have your Republican friends in the Republican House to introduce such legislation ? After passing quickly in the House, perhaps all of your colleagues in the Senate can sort it our. Or go on CNN and pi$$ and moan. I support travel restrictions and have a president and legislative branch that won’t, can’t take action.

    So far, from Dallas to Dulles, one out of every 110 million Americans have contracted Ebola here in the states. Of those, none have died.

    Your gonna use dietary rules for Jews to stay holy and clean before God as an argument? How about all the illicit sex laws in every city in the US to keep this coupling from happening? You got rock stars and senators being arrested for inappropriate acts in men’s rooms yet you have no problem requiring businesses to be fined and shut down because they openly refuse to accomodate the same on their property in a public way.
    This employee’s rights are being violated by the employer( a civil servant) and you want him to quit or be fired. You liberals want it your way until it bites you on your a$s. Then it is Bush’s fault. Blow it out your nostrils until it fills up your colon. (keep your head up your Bu#t)
    Have a nice day

    Having a great day,thanks. However I am hardly a liberal..try conservative libertarian. Never voted for a Demo in my life and Ronnie Reagan is my favorite president. You like the govt. deciding what sex acts you and the wife enjoy ? Really? Well no of course not, just “THEM”. A straight couple can perform the same “acts” as a gay one. So it’s not the act,but who performs it that offends you?
    Go ahead and be offended, it’s none of my or your business what adults wish to do with each other. You may want the govt. involved in your most personal affairs,
    I’ll pass. You however want govt. in your home and getting a A Ok to do act X. Sure sounds conservative to me. I don’t want Bush or Obama that close to me.

    @SLEAZYHIPPOs ILLEGITIMATE OFFSPRING
    @ Jim….I understand your point of view, I still think that accepting as a society same sex marriage is a dangerous thing, but we don’t have to agree :-). You have a good day Jim…

    You have a GREAT day! Good chat
